When to clip?
I'm planning on giving Lacey a bib clip this winter just to help her sweat a little bit less when it's cold out but I'm not sure exactly when to clip her for the first time.
Obviously now is too soon but since her winter coat is very much starting to coming in, I figure I should start thinking about this.
So when do you start clipping your horse?

I would just say as soon as she begins to need it :) Some people say you should only do it at certain times, because it damages the coat, but I've never experienced that :-)
Don't forget to substitute what she might lose heat-wise with a rug when needed :-)

November is a good time. I wouldn't do it any later than December.

I'm in Alberta, and I'm clipping my guy this coming week sometime....he's indoors, but he sweats so much that I can't get him dry.....I think anytime before Jan 1st is good.....although I'm just being cautious in saying that, as I have never seen any problem with summer coat coming in and clipping.....but I've heard of issues.......

Its not so much when to start clipping as it is when to stop. I start clipping as soon as I see them getting fuzzy, but I will not clip after February. You dont want to clip/ruin the summer coat coming in.

In the UK it is normal to start clipping in mid October as the coats start to grow. Then clip again in November and possibly January time.

You can clip whenever he starts getting fuzzy , usually around late Oct. or Nov. but DONT CLIP LATE !!! You will ruin his spring/summer coat
